How disappointing. I was hoping that this would be a wankathon.

So who fancies entering? Or are we attending coffee mornings or pie eating gatherings that day?

Saying that 200 clicks on the bike followed by 20k run is a bit mental...oh that's after a 3K swim.

Will be cool to bike round the F1 track though....

Eva, ill see you at the start line

Wankathon lol...

aye looks good but no way i'd be anywhere near ready by march, is there one in 2011? 3km swim would be fine but the 200km bike would kill me.

on a side note commander, have you seen "the man who cycled the world"
if not its well worth a download (nb not read the book)
